Even though I am a Nutritional Therapist, this post is less about nutrition and more about enjoying the life that you have. Although nutrition is a large component to your ability to do that by its impact on the health of your body, there are multiple other factors that contribute to an enjoyable existence. As I get older and wiser, I find myself desiring peace and a quality life over possessions or material things, even appearances. What matters most is how we feel on the inside, our ability to enjoy the life we have been given, and to give back to others. Here are, in my opinion, pearls of wisdom that have helped me to enhance the joy in my life and live with purpose:
1. Let Go! Let go of those things that weigh you down like bitterness, anger, hurt, pain, unforgiveness, failure, regret, mistakes. Thinking about these things does not do any good. The power of our thoughts is absolutely amazing! We have the ability to make or break our lives merely by the thoughts we think. We can choose to allow the difficult things that we go through in life to strengthen us and teach us things or we can allow it to bring us down. We do have a choice in life. Choose to let go of the bad and use what you have been through in a positive way.
2. Stress Less. “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?” Matthew 6:27 In fact, worrying serves to lessen the quality of your life and possibly the length of your life as well. Many of us know that stress is damaging to the body but many of us continue to allow stress in our lives. The next tip has helped me tremendously to not allow my life to become stressed, but to have faith in the process of life working together for good.
3. Have Faith. Believing that “All things work for good….” Romans 8:28 can change your entire outlook on any situation that you may be facing. Having faith in God has been instrumental in helping me to let go, stress less, and enjoy the life that God has given to me trusting that He is working everything out for my good.
4. Have FUN! Find things that you enjoy doing and begin doing them as often as possible. If you enjoy dancing, then dance. If it is writing, then write. If it is getting a massage, book an appointment. If it is hanging out with friends, pick up the phone and schedule a time. The more we do to enjoy our lives the better the quality and quite possibly the quantity of our life.
5. Eat to Live. I can’t go away from this without giving you some information on how you can improve the quality of your life with nutrition. After all, the reason that I have studied nutrition and entered this field was to heal my own body. In doing that, my life has been radically transformed and the quality of my life has improved 100-fold. With that said, eating healthy is so very important to your quality of life. Here is my simple nutrition tip: Eat whole, clean foods that have not been processed and adulterated with chemicals, pesticides, hormones, or antibiotics. Eating clean will help you to have a clear mind and give you energy to enjoy your life!
Here’s to wishing you a happy, enjoyable life!
